  1. In 1985 I traveled from Mombassa to Lamu on a dhow with sailors who sang songs about a giant who sailed on a huge dhow. It took a couple of days and walking on land felt so strange when I arrived. After that I took a tiny motor boat from Lamu to Kismayo and it was not the same thing at all. Wonderful journeys. I remember them so well.
